-- or religion a part of that campaign. as a matter of fact, i think religion became a part of this campaign when mr. mondale's running mate said i wasn't a good christian. so, it does play a part in my life. i have no hesitancy in saying so. and, as i say, i don't believe that i could carry on unless i had a belief in a higher authority and a belief that prayers are answered. >> given those beliefs, mr. president, why don't you attend services regularly, either by going to church or by inviting a minister to the white house, as president nixon used to do, or someone to camp david, as president carter used to do? >> the answer to your question is very simple about why i don't go to church. i have gone to church regularly all my life, and i started to here in washington. and now, in the position i hold and in the world in which we live, where embassies do get blown up in beirut -- we're supposed to talk about that on the debate the 21st, i understand -- but i pose a threat to several hundred people if i go to church. i know the threats that are made against me. we all know the possibility of terro

terrorists who do not represent libya, who do not represent islam. islam is a religion of tolerance, peace, and love, just as president obama said, from this platform two days ago. our future is a future that will be charted by people like chris stevens, not people like his killers. in this context, i would like to express my condolences to the libyan people and to others for the death of the person who has joined the long list of martyrs from five days ago. mr. president, i would like to express our deep appreciation for the understanding showed by the u.s. administration following that incident. let me stress that my country is determined to pursue the perpetrators and to bring them to justice. we shall make our utmost to strengthen the necessary protection granted to diplomatic and consular missions, and to insure the safety of their employees and facilities. this painful event in no way expresses the feelings of the libyan people, a people of moderation, hospitality, and gratitude. perhaps the large demonstrations condemning this insidious crime in the city of benghazi and other libyan

ought to be free, just as jews and christians and hindus ought to be free to practice religion. he was representing american values but i don't think he was apologizing. it is very important that the united states and israel -- this to the first part of your comment -- be together publicly. there is a separation between the u.s. and israeli governments which is not healthy. as in every family, you want to have a united front publicly. it is ok to disagree behind the scenes, but you do not want to disagree in front of adversaries. it is incumbent upon the israelis and americans to show french a publicly. -- show friendship publicly. i side with president obama on this one. prime minister netanyahu of israel has effectively intervene in our campaign here by suggesting that the united states should drop redlines and that we will use military force if iran does x or z. that does not make sense. we do not want to send the military into battle just because iran reaches a certain level of enrichment of uranium. we ought to want our president, whether it is president obama or president rom

respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. host: more headlines following these speeches, "obama talks tough on mideast extremism." "uses addressed to regain the initiative on foreign policy." if you look at the front page of "the washington times" this , the right "the expected campaign advantage on foreign policy suddenly in doubt, the president portrayed the deaths of the americans in libya has inflamed tensions over an anti- islamic movie rather than tensions based on american policy in the middle east." from "the washington times," the headline says "romney, exchange for reform."

as it should be. host: does religion played a part in virginia voters? guest: absolutely. in virginia, like in many states, you see a clear link between the level of religiosity, the frequency of religious attendance, whether it is 8 synagogue or a christian or catholic church -- what you see is the more frequently people participate in religious activities, the more likely they are to vote republican. particularly evangelical christian communities, which tend to be more organized in rural parts of the state, very aggressive efforts to connect with fellow members of accommodation to bring out more people for mitt romney. this is the key part of the advantage that republicans have in many parts of the south. it is the presence of organized, religiously oriented political activity. for gin is the home state of the jerry falwell and pat robinson -- virginia is the home state of jerry falwell and pat robertson. what you see in northern virginia, in less religiously oriented part of the state, is that jerry falwell and pat robertson have little impact, perhaps only in a negative wait for many vo

traditions. but there is a fundamental difference between israel and extremism. islam is a great religion peacefully over a billion people in our world. it's the most extremism is a warped political ideology supported by the minority that seeks to hijack this great religion to gain respectability for the violent objectives. it is vital that we make this distinction. in turkey we see the government with fruits and islamic values but one with democratic politics and open economy and responsible attitude to supporting change in libya and syria and elsewhere in the region. i profoundly believe that the same part is open to egypt to nisha and their neighbors and we must help them take it. democracy in islam can flourish alongside one another. so let us judge governments not by their religion, but how they act and what they do and let us in the region in a space government in egypt and tunisia said their success can strengthen democracy, not undermine it. mr. president, there is no doubt that we are in the midst of profound change and that many uncertainties lie ahead. the building blocks of de

. there's different people, there's different races. there's different religions, and they don't want to accept that. they don't want to change their mindset. so, in the end, they campaign about the media coverage being biased, but when they look at it, the media coverage is not reflecting -- i mean, it's small, because their views are small. i think the media adequately reflects what the larger part of society feels. host: when you hear that somebody is a fox news watcher, do you immediately assume or think of them as potentially racist? caller: i do. because fox news, that's all -- i wish they knew people. i wish they knew other views. you know, the way they bash president obama, i mean, if he were white, you know, it would be different. i think they would look at it differently. i just don't think that -- i just think they're narrow-minded. they probably don't think they're racist, you know, but it's just how they put things out there, how they portray different groups and different people. you know, for instance, the muslims, they're just bad people. i'm a muslim, you know? why wo

believe that muslims should be freed as christians and others should be free to practice their religions. that is all the president is saying. i think it is important that the united states and israel be together here publicly. there is a separation between the u.s. and israeli governments which is not healthy. you want to have a united front publicly. you do not want to disagree in front of our adversaries. we'll have an honest disagreement with the israeli government. prime minister netanyahu has intervened in our political campaign by suggesting the united states should draw military force if iran does x, y, or z. that doesn't make sense to me. we should want our president to be able to use his own judgment at the time to make this decision. i agree with president obama. try to restrain israel and preventing israel from attacking is the right decision. we should support israel. again, i think the president is showing a lot of wisdom here. host: this is a photo from "the new york times."

are engaged in war and we adopted a political theory meaning that terrorism has no religion and it is a common threat regionally and internationally. it requires an necessitates a common effort to fight terrorism within the frame, along with what we did to cement the corporation in combating terrorism with more than 40 nations, and that included all aspects in intelligence exchange, activities, and how best to combat and deter and have a bilateral meeting with those nations. this theory that has been adopted by the yemeni government comes with the understanding of terrorism and today it is not an isolated problem to a specific nation. it is, rather, an international threat from the political, social, economic levels. this will reflect the fierce willingham-- fears that the threats are diversified and transnational. there are lives that they're been lost. we have suffered and we are still suffering from terrorism and we have played a lot with blood and life. many of the public institutions, and it affected tourism. and now most of the hotels in yemen are closed. there are no foreigners at all.

's private. to him, it feels like bragging to tell these stories and it draws attention to his religion which he is reluctant to spend a lot of time on. there were people talking now, trying to encourage these stories and getting people to talk openly about their experiences. what is surprising is not so much his view on issues, but the thing that made him an attractive national candidate was the fact that he was able to work across the auto and he was, in fact, a moderate. in order to get the nomination, he had to go so hard right in order to bring those people on board and unfortunately, it seems he is not able to do the poll lead at most of them do at this point. most people say you have to be angry, tough, but that is not his temperament. that comes across as false. what i find myself hoping for, for the sake of the country and a fair fight is that he can get back to being the person that he is without worrying what anybody is going to think of him. what difference does it make? just to be who you are? it is no longer about the republican primary. >> if you are not authentic, we put a gir
